Blind Item #5

Despite her non-stop efforts at getting publicity for herself over the past few months, this C list celebrity who used to be almost A list has had no takers for anyone who wants to represent her or take a chance on her. They know what happened last time and think she will be a huge flop. They have tried to explain to her that it is not about publicity as it is about talent and how no one thinks she has any.

Blohan. Why does she even bother trying to get acting work when she's making a ton of money prostituting herself?

chopchop said...

Because prostitution is on the downlow and she wants to be front & center, cover of magazines.

DBZee said...

Jessica? "What happened last time" might be the WW thing.

Say what you will about her foolishness, Lindsay *definitely* had (had?) talent. I haven't seen Liz & Dick, so I can't speak to her current talent.

Or maybe the huge flop was Liz & Dick, and the BI really is Lindsay.

DBZee said...

*has (had?)

{sigh}

hanban said...

Such a shame... I used to really enjoy blohan (circa Mean Girls). Now I just want her to go away. Such a train wreck!

7pmtrain said...

Plus maybe the "clients" won't pay as much when she's no longer famous/infamous. It's not like her looks command a high price.

Sugar said...

I think it's Lindsay too! Does this mean that people are finally getting wise and choosing not to represent her any more? I was always suprised that anyone would represent her these days anyhow. And if you decide to become her assistant, well then, you're just ignorant. :-)

Amber said...

@DBZee - L&D was hysterically awful

7pmtrain said...

Uhh, I was referring to Lindsay.

cinephreak said...

No way did Lindsay have any talent... She got lucky with Mean Girls, and all her roles shes been the exact same.

Sarah said...

The entertainment value on Lindsay stories is gone. Even her juiciest exploits reek of something most of us cannot enjoy. For years there were those last threads of hope, talent, glimmers of self awareness.
Watching her self destruct so methodically, slowly, in real time....it seems to be never ending. But it will end, and badly.

John Kodehe said...

Fox or Lohan.... or Fox and Lohan....

donner said...

please let Lohan stay in the UK (after she does her 2 seconds in jail for lying to cops, of course) and let her work the same route Tara Reid and Pamela Anderson do. They are hardly ever mentioned in the US anymore and I would love for that to be the same of the Lohans and their ilk.

Still hate them all...

Cathy said...

My first thought was LeAnn (since not ALL blinds can be Lindsay), but since I think I remember something about Lindsay's agent resigning a little while back, she seems like the logical choice.

PuggleWug said...

Fox doesn't pull a lot of publicity stunts. Lindsay is in the media nonstop (unfortunately). Why is this even a blind?

lalaland923 said...

Enty, Why isn't this titled "Easy Easy?" LiLo needs to be in a psych ward/involuntary rehab program minimum for a year and then disappear forever. Not just to save the world from having to hear about her boring firecrotch, but to honestly save herself in the process as well.

eris hilton said...

Everyone is always saying she *had* talent, but honestly? Mean girls was good because of Tina Fey. She was cute in the parent trap but... what else was there? When was she ever really that good?

ms snarky said...

Megan Fox is in "This is 40." I was shocked that she had a role, but she was okay in it.

Lindsey said...

All I want to know is why in the world are these people seeking out STDs? You know it's part of it when LILo is hired.

Adventurous Kate said...

I really don't get why people wax poetic about Lindsay Lohan's talent as a child.

She was a cute kid who said her lines correctly, then a teenager with passable acting skills. Not a major talent.

She's like the female Justin Timberlake. Every move, every gesture screams, "LOOK AT ME! I'M ACTING!"

I so wish there was a "Like" button on some of the posts.

I'm looking at you, @Adventurous Kate!

Lisa said...

LiLo WAS talented. She was a cutie, too. I remember her on Another World (yes, showing my age) and she was good. She was good in Parent Trap and Mean Girls, too. If you want to see bad kid acting, watch that kid in the Phantom Menace. Yikes.

I just want to shake her until her teeth rattles for being so stupid! And slap Dina and Michael.

auntliddy said...

Biel!

Tuxedo Cat said...

I think it's Mischa Barton again.

Cheryl said...

Those creepy billionaires can get all the hookers they want to do whatever they want. The draw, is getting a star, even a fading one. Without any publicity or legitimate work, she is nobody to them.

Basil said...

Gotta be Lohan. The thing that happened "lest time" was probably her kicking her publicist out of her car and then him very publicly resigning and slamming her in the media.

She is burning bridges left and right.

hunter said...

Maybe she USED to be talented but now there is no preparation or committment to any role. She seems to think that by just showing up and saying words (lines) the "talent" will work on its own.

It doesn't.

Sherry said...

Was Mischa ever almost A list?This blind writes like it's Lohan.

kelly said...

When Parent Trap came out, I remember critics raving about Lindsay's performance. Whether we liked it as individuals or not, or thought it was just a one-off or whatever, the fact is she WAS recognized by the industry as being talented.

ms snarky said...

I didn't think she was particularly talented in Parent Trap. But she was't particularly natural or engaging. She was cute, and that's about it. You never forgot that she was a child trying to act and only succeeding in over-acting.

Mark said...

Ashlee Simpson came immediately to mind, with what happened last time being SNL.

ms snarky said...

and, sadly, Parent Trap (old and new versions) are on my fave movie list. *I am so ashamed*

ms snarky said...

@Mark - nice guess. I could be down with the Asslee for this.

Maximus said...

@DBZee your comment was right the first time :P (had (had?))

This has to be Lohan. Not only did she have that publicist quit a couple months back, but we haven't heard anything about anyone else who may have the job. I think there was one mention of someone once, but beside that I've heard nothing.

L&D was terrible. Her acting is atrocious. The Canyons doesn't look to be any better. This girl needs serious help and her father is too much of a fame whore to be taken seriously as the one to do it. It's like he's living a real life example of the "Boy who cried wolf" but the wolf is a devastating addiction that is going to destroy his daughter (possibly two daughters? Ali seems to be somewhere down the rabbit hole, too)

meredith said...

I can't believe I'm defending Hot Mess Lohan, but I thought her performance in Georgia Rules was perhaps the only bright spot in that otherwise dreadful movie. I do think she had some genuine talent at one point in the distant past.

High Heels said...

The first sentence made me immediately think of Ashlee Simpson.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Can't this be Kardashian? Just read no one wants to represent her and her baby weight battle. She hopes to get the same deal as Jessica Simpson.
Only the talent part is off, since losing weight isn't about talent. And we all know that generally speaking the Kardashians don't have talent. HAHA

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Lohan used to be pretty ok in the actingdepartment. I remember her first 'comeback', a Glee episode with Perez Hilton. She has HORRIBLE. It was like she was reading lines instead of acting. Perez was outshining her and that says a lot.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

*was

nancer said...

get off the talent thing. there are many child stars who couldn't transition to adult acting. she's washed up, she's a thief, a whore, an addict and a liar. why anyone clings to her previous 'talent' escapes me. she's a lost cause.

Terese said...

BLOHAN.

She should retire from trying to be something she is NEVER going to be and become a full-time prostitute. Apparently, she has talent at that.

moussemaker said...

Paris Hilton?

Wen said...

For some reason, this makes me think Hilary Duff.

Me again said...

Why do some of you have to be so rude to each other? Dang. It's Lindsay Lohan- no need to get all ruse. But that's what you guys do. Another one you've run off.

Nope said...

I thought of Heidi whatsherface from The Hills. Almost A list is a stretch though.

DBZee said...

^ ? Who was run off? I didn't see a lot of rudeness in this thread. Some people are just blunt or word things differently. Trust me, if my FIL was ever on a message board, it would go up in flames - zero tact and the filter between his brain and his mouth is a bit leaky. But he's very nice in person, once you get past that. I always try to remember that when people come across as a little harsh or rude.

I think we're all united our campaign to mess with the Lohan!

(heh, did it again!)

greenmountaingal said...

I totally agree. I never thought she was super talented. It's not like she has Meryl Streep level talent and is throwing it away.

Mia Luna said...

I agree with Meredith, her performance in Georgia Rule was by far the best thing about that movie. She had talent.

Mia Luna said...

Spring said...

Kate Gosselin....just saying...since he said about her being a celebrity....

Fluffy White Clouds said...

Shit You Can't Buy, I was thinking the same thing....

E Gee Be said...

Right, @ms snarky? I was pleasantly surprised by how decent she was in that movie. Especially because I read the scene with Jason Segal and Chris ODowd was all improv, she held her own.

JSierra said...

She really is dragging this out for a long time. Shit or get off the pot Linds!

Fluffy White Clouds said...

Late to this, but yes, Loca Lohan.

PuggleWug said...

I didn't see people being rude to one another on this thread. I guess you can say rude language was used in regards to Blohan, but she sort of is asking for it.

Steppy said...

Not Lohan, she has two projects coming out soon.

I agree, this is a mean place, if you disagree with the trash talkers, they trash you.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

My guess is Lohan.

She's been all over the place, first New York and now London, and lots of going out. Difference being she used to just stay in LA, not this travel.

Nobody wants to take a chance to represent, from framing her assistant in that car crash to telling that guy to "get out of the car."

And/or that could mean movie people instead of agents or assistants. She trashed Liz's trailer, skipped out on a $48k bill to Chateau Marmont, screwed over the Million-Dollar Decorators. Sure, they got more interest in these projects with Lindsay's name attached. But at some point, the damages caused by Lindsay will be more money than the profits. It's not worth it when the end product has all the inflection of a Charlie Brown character!

lutefisk said...

I didn't think Lindsey was even C list at this point. There are so many other people that would fit here also. I don't think the talent is the issue in representing LL. It is the mess that she turned her life into.

Paper trail said...

I really think this is Kim K, with the "no takers" being in regards to the unborn spawn, some kind of tv show or sponsorship or something. "Last time" would be her big wedding spectacle. She has no talent, she will admit that. And she has been all over the papers the past few months with Kanye.
Lohan arguably has talent, though some say no, but it is debatable. This person seems pretty clear that they have zero.

Anna Namuss said...

OHHHhhhh Lindsay.. Aren't you precious?? Still thinking that this is 2002 and you're still hot.Oh honey, no. Just,,,, no. Why don't you go sit down in the corner and color for a little bit okay? Mommy and Daddy will be here soon to pick you up and then you can go for a nice ride in the car and get some ice cream. Would you like that?

mell61 said...

Lohan... any chance we can have a week free of KarKrashians and Lohan... Just to make the guessing game a bit more diverse (i'd ask for a month, but with those 2 clans, that would be pushing it)

Zelda Zonk Garde said...

I think this is more Fox than LL. first I think he would have called this blind "easy" and what happened last time would have been her trashing her director publicly

Mala Propism said...

Actually, she did a fabulous job of channeling Jamie Lee Curtis in Freaky Friday. It was a flash of talent that got buried under everything Lohan.

Mala Propism said...

She really did show flashes of talent in Freaky Friday. It just didn't last.

Principessa said...

Lindsay had talent. HAD. Before she was maybe 17 or 18 and she got with Wilmer and she had access to all sorts of vices, she was pretty good. Between her parents and all the shitty men in her life she had a promising future.
Sad.

Jenn said...

I liked Georgia Rules, she was good in it. That murdered twin stripper movie wasn't too godawful. She's just a twit who's wasted all her chances. So maybe this is Lohan. But, it could be the idiot Bynes, who can't drive, and smoke pot. What a tool.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Sure is weird to think back... During the "Love Bug" days, she put out a CD. (Now she puts out and is seedy.) It even went platinum.

She had a line of spray-tan at Sephora, and a fashion clothing line. Now the only lines we see involved with are the powdery kind found on mirrors.

Just makes me so mad... all these things, opportunities she's had, and pissed it all away.

Comma Chaser said...

A couple of people upstairs said either Kardashian or Gosselin, and I think they may be onto something. THe BI says "celebrity" not "actor". And everyone else here thinking it's Lohan have been discussing her relative merits as an actor, which means most people see her in some context as still trying to act.

I think it's Kardashian. "publicity" being the buzz word.
